Shade of Aran

2 posts in this topic

To defeat Heroic Shade of Aman, I went a totally different route by using a Mill Brann-Reno rogue. Of course I still included damage spells like Backstab, Eviscerate, and Sinister Strike, but what ultimately killed him was fatigue!

Coldlight Oracle FTW

One of the great things about playing as rogue is that I can attack with my hero to trigger the Flame Wreaths on an empty board. He played the 1st one Turn 2 and the 2nd on Turn 3. Totally wasted on his part. ;)

Turn 9 marked the start of the reign of Reno. He began by healing me up from 14. Then on Turn 10, Brann + Shadowcaster = 2x 1-cost Renos added to my hand. I rationed my Renos as much as I thought necessary. Played my 2nd one when I was down only to 22, because I was paranoid about being hit with 2x Fireballs. (Boss was down to 10 health. I was so close, and didn't want to lose to bad luck!) I used the 3rd when Shade of Aran launched a Fireball, Frostbolt, and Arcane Missiles to bring me down to 10. I followed that up with a Vanish. That gave me a "just in case" Reno #4 to hold onto through the final turn.

Thistle Tea actually worked out perfectly in this match. It drew for me Coldlight Oracle, which resulted in 3x Coldlight Oracles. The Vanish on the 2nd to last turn gave me the "4th" Oracle that I needed to bury the boss for good.

Undercity Huckster pulled his weight in this fight too. His deathrattle gave me Rhonin. In turn, Rhonin's deathrattle gave me 3x Arcane Missles...which in turn provided me with a very beefy Edwin VanCleef! Of course, VC only lasted one turn. :( He ate a Pyroblast for me though. :)

Fighting fire with fire isn't the only way to beat Shade of Aran. If you find tricksy methods exciting, give mill a try. :D

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
